Symantec Storage Foundation

Symantec Storage Foundation powered by Veritas delivers storage Quality of Service (QoS) at the application level and maximizes your storage efficiency, availability and performance across operating systems, virtualization technologies, and storage hardware. Storage Foundation enables a flexible and agile infrastructure with features such as SmartIO and Flexible Storage Sharing while reducing storage costs with features such as deduplication, compression, thin provisioning, and storage tiering. Storage Foundation also provides a standard set of integrated tools from Veritas Operations Manager, a comprehensive management platform. With Storage Foundation, you can adopt Solid State Drive (SSD) technology and implement any changes to your storage infrastructure, including operating system or array migrations, without impacting application availability.

Key Features

  • Granular and online application level caching
  • Combine shared and direct-attached storage (DAS)
  • Increased storage utilization across heterogeneous environments
  • Deduplication and compression
  • I/O path availability and performance
  • Automated storage tiering
  • Centralized storage management
  • Easy OS and Storage Migration with minimum downtime

Key Benefits

  • Granular, online caching at the application level. With SmartIO, application architects, server administrators, and database administrators can move reads and writes inside the server. In lab tests replicating real-world use-cases, SmartIO delivers up to 400% performance improvement while reducing storage costs by 80%.
  • Simplify SSD/Flash adoption and realize the performance benefits without compromising on high-availability and flexibility. Using Flexible Storage Sharing (FSS), scale-out servers with Direct-Attached Storage (DAS) and experience near-local read and write performance to and from remote disks.
  • Comprehensive insight into the storage environment enabling improved usage and efficiency across all major operating systems including Oracle Solaris, HP-UX, IBM AIX, SUSE Linux, Oracle Enterprise Linux (RHEL compatible mode), Microsoft Windows and storage hardware including EMC, HDS, IBM, Network Applicance, HP, Compellent, 3Par and more.
  • Reduction of primary storage footprint with built-in deduplication and compression in primary storage. In lab tests replicating real-world use-cases, deduplication reduced storage footprint by 50-80% and compression reduced footprints by 70%.
  • Get the maximum performance and failure protection for your storage. Dynamic Multi-Pathing efficiently spreads I/Os across multiple paths to deliver maximum performance, path failure protection and fast failover.
  • Use the right storage for the right workload. SmartTier, a feature of Storage Foundation, seamlessly and transparently moves data based on business value.
  • Simplify database management while achieving high availability and superior performance for DB2, Oracle, Sybase, and SQL databases with Storage Foundation.
  • Migrate across operating systems without downtime. Portable Data Containers, a feature of Storage Foundation, helps easily and quickly convert data for use between Unix and Linux operating systems, enabling seamless data migration.
